Useful Information

Plant Bio

Hoya reutsa is part of the Apocynaceae family and is native to the Karnataka province in India. This Hoya is often mistaken for a Rhipsalis due to its flat leaflets. Retusa refers to the notched ends of the leaflets, they look slightly heart shaped. Hoya retusa is more likely to bloom under cooler night time temperatures (10°C). Flowers are star-shaped, cream in colour with a burgundy centre. 

Pot: 12cm diameter.

Foliage: Approximately 15cm in length.

It's also pictured in a 14cm St Tropez Blue ceramic pot (not included)

Secrets to success

Temperature: No lower than 10°C at night and up to 30°C during the day.

Light: Bright indirect light works best for Hoya retusa.

Watering: Allow this plant to dry out a little but not too much as it's thinner than other Hoya.

Air humidity: Average to slightly higher.

Potting mix: A light and airy mix with coco coir and orchid bark to aid drainage.

This plant isn't toxic but the sap is an irritant, keep out of reach of pets and children just in case.
